Latest info on my progress:

I got the the CVS version of RC_1_34_0. I then compiled my own version of bjam
from those sources, running on cygwin.

I then edited the tools/build/v2/user-config.jam file and added something like
        using gcc : : x86_486-g++ ;
(x86_486-g++ is the name of our our linux cross compiler running on cygwin)

Running bjam stage began compiling boost, but still with some problems:
  * It still tried to create dll files instead of .so shared libraries
  * Compilation failed with an error "bad parameter thread" or "parameter thread
not supported" or something like that (can't remember the exact wording).

So I guess boost.build2 is still using my host settings to compile the target
files, which is wrong in my case. Do you see any chance I can change that? I
have looked in some of the jam files but the jam language is just like chinese
to me :-(

A temporary solution might be to run the build system on some linux PC so that I
get the correct files, but if there is a way to use bjam for cross compiling I
would like to use that.
